July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month

July is Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, also called Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Mental Health Awareness Month.

In 2008, Congress passed a resolution that established the month of July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month to bring awareness to the unique struggles that minority groups face regarding mental illness in the US. Mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

We all can do better and be better when it comes to supporting those within our community living with mental illnesses.

We must also work to replace and increase access to mental health services that were lost when then Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed more than half of the mental health clinics in Chicago, and others were closed across Cook County.
